Indrajit, who had seen Deewar, Hindi movie, was very impressed with Amitabh Bachchan’s Angry Young Man Look and his performance.  Indrajit Lankesh was also a director in Kannada cinema at the time, so he bought the Kannada remake rights of Diwar cinema directed by Yash Chopra.

Diwar Cinema had created a huge trend in Bollywood.  Similarly, the film was remade in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam, starring ANR, Rajinikanth and Mammootty in South Indian languages.  When Indrajit wanted to make this movie in Kannada , he thought of Casting Darshan and Sudeep in Kannada version of deewar.

Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor played the role of brothers in Diwar.  Indrajit wantes Sudeep to play the role of Amitabh Bachchan. When Indrajit narrated the story to  Sudeep, he was very happy and agreed to act in it.  When Darshan was narrated the story, Darshan also like it but, he also wanted to play the role of Amitabh Bachchan. As both the actors wanted to lay Big B role , Kannada remake of Deewar movie was shelved.

“Even today, I have the Deewar remake rights,” said Indrajit Lankesh
